I don't really have the money to take my cat to the vet because I'm worried it will be a ton of money to fix or worse yet they will tell me to put her down. However, my 14 year old American Shorthair cat, Josie has a semi-hard lump about 3/8" just above her left eye. I can touch it without it bothering her and she is behaving normally, eating and using her box but she does seem a bit more affectionate with us. Any insight you might be able to offer will be much appreciated! -Judy-

Dear Judy,

I would suggest you see a veterinary acupuncturist that has been trained in TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary medicine). They can sometimes get energy flowing which can help reduce lumps. You could also try our homeopathic product, Derma-IonX to detoxify the body. This might stimulate the immune system.

In addition I would use the following supplements: digestive enzymes, probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9. If you can feed a grain free diet that might be helpful. At her age you would need to introduce the new food very gradually. It is also important to avoid giving chlorinated water for drinking. Filtered water is advisable. Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
